4.July is Fellowship Month. Each Sunday we are having a fellowship dinner immediately after church.Be in service this weekend to find out the details.
5.I’m reading this book – Not a Fan – authored by Kyle Idleman.The emphasis of the book is to be a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ instead of a mere fan.The author talks about surrender, repentance, and brokenness which is a stark contrast to the shallow, bumper-sticker religion of today.The book was suggested to me by Sidney Gill last Sunday who told me she had been reading it during the Discipleship series I had been teaching. The language of the book is very similar to that series too. I wish I had discovered this book sooner, it would have been a great resource. If you like a penetrating message that stabs at the core of casual Christianity, this book is for you. Highly recommended.
This is my personal blog. I write about making disciples, the local church, the church I pastor, and other related topics. These entries are usually directed to the congregation I lead, hopefully exerting some measure of influence on them, as well as including them with information about the state of our church. In many ways, this is my second pulpit. My blog also includes personal information about myself and family – usually very transparent, and sometimes humorous. Hope you enjoy.
